    My son purchased a non-running 1974 John Deere 110 that needed some TLC back in the spring as a project to make a little extra cash. He got it running and repainted and found a guy that needed a lawn mower and had a running 1997 Jeep for a trade, We took the mower down the road about a half hour to meet the Jeep owner , they talked and my son gave him $100.00 and the mower and we brought the Jeep home. It was very dirty, needed a new windsheild and a few front end parts ( he spent about $300 on getting the jeep fixed up.  He then just last week sold the Jeep and turned around and bought a 1994 F 150 4x4 for 1700.00.  When we figured it all out he had about $300.00 in a very nice truck.  He's pretty pumped.

He did a nice job on that 110 and came out on the top for the truck. Good Job!

Nice truck. My dad had a White 93 just about the same as that one. Your son has a nose for deals and the skills to make them!
